Custom Guide: 
What do you need:
- A USB with 8gb

- Torrent OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 bootable USB for Intel PCs
- Files attached on this post
How to prepare usb install:
1- Download this torrent OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 bootable USB for Intel PCs
2- Install RAW image on your usb 
Open the terminal:
Find your USB stick
- diskutil list 
Unmount USB
- diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk2
Copy RAW Image
- sudo dd if= [drag and drop the raw file in terminal] of=/dev/rdisk2 bs=1m
Wait to finish and now you have a usb install ready to copy kext and clover
3- Download Clover EFI,  extract and open the clover efi
4- Mount your EFI USB partition whitout format and  then copy all files of Clover EFI into
5- Now copy all kexts of efi/clover/kexts/10.9 into OS X Install USB/System/Library/Extensions and replace
So now you have a full USB Install for this Asus
How to install Mavericks in your notebook:
1- Boot installation from USB
2- Format HDD on GPT
3- Select Partition to install and finish installation
4- Now we must format EFS partition to FAT32, then mount this partition and copy Clover files
(to format EFS we can do from terminal or with EFI Tools Clover (F option))
5- To install kexts use EDP system “” attached or http://argo.osxlatit...m/edp/download/
Or use "Kext" if not work EDP, open, drop files of kexts folder and put your password wait until finish Add and close. Now you can restart system
(If you don't have DSDT patched use No-DSDT-Kexts so if you have use DSDT-Kexts)
If you don't use patched DSDT i think that you put this string on config.plist to enable HD4000
<key>device-properties</key>   <string>7f0000000100000001000000730000000200000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000005006201140000006800640061002d0067006600780000000d0000006f6e626f6172642d31</string>
6- Then go into BIOS, in Boot menu select "Add New Boot Option" and complete:
Add boot option: (put a name) for example: Clover boot
Select Filesystem: (Select HDD that have Mac OSX Installed)
Path for boot option: \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi
Select Create and put the new boot option first.
Check too the VRAM of HD4000 is 64MB because probably if it's changed not work 
Save changes and reboot
7- So, now when system boot show Clover bootloader and just select the Mac OSX partition and press enter
If you did it all Mavericks boot well
Now put into Applications folder if you want see temperatures and frequency and enjoy your Hackintosh!!!
If you have other problems ask me :)
Note: If you want save more battery use MacBookPro9,1 on SMBIOS this disables Turbo Boost. Then with this the maximum frecuency will be 2.30Ghz insteed of 3.10Ghz
In Mavericks wifi broadcom 4312 don't work with encripted networks, the only way to "fix" this is: 
Replace the \usr\libexec\airportd from version 10.8.3 and the kext that was working with previous versions of os x and the only way to connect is  from System preferences-Network-Wifi-Assist me-assistant and add manually your network.

We are gonna work on integrating this system in EDP! Stay tuned, it will cost a few days until I have gathered all files.


After we have added it, you can easily install just like our other systems! :)
